WHY WE NEED CHANGE
Women are under-represented at senior levels in universities and in various key disciplines. This is despite the fact that women are as well represented in terms of high school success and at junior levels.
The female workforce representation and female participation rate are important because they show
that women are present in the workforce. The lack of senior women isn’t a “supply” issue.
So why aren’t women and men equally represented across all organisational levels?
EVIDENCE BASED-RESOURCES AND PRACTICAL TIPS
These resources provide evidence-based summaries of (and links to) reports and research studies.
These resources provide a rigorous underpinning to the topic and allows informed decision-making.
We also share informal ideas and suggestions that come from our own experiences, as well as from the many men and women we have interviewed.
We hope that by sharing a diverse array of anecdotes and practical tips,
some will resonate and help achieve success.
